Delicious Korean Fried Rice
Whenever I dine out at Korean restaurants, I always ask for extra kimchi, which I pack home. Whenever I have extra kimchi, I would always make kimchi fried rice, which is easily one of the most delicious fried rice recipes ever!
What Is Kimchi Fried Rice
Kimchi fried rice is a popular Korean recipe and it takes practically 15 minutes to make.
It calls for a few basic ingredients: kimchi, overnight steamed rice, and egg. The egg is always fried separately and served on top of the kimchi fried rice but most of the time, I just love it plain with just kimchi and rice.
It’s delicious as is, mouthwatering and appetizing.
Working With Kimchi
As kimchi is somewhat wet, remember to squeeze the juice out of the kimchi before you make the fried rice. I like my fried rice toasty and somewhat dry, not wet.
The reddish color and the pungent kimchi aromas beckon whenever I cook the dish. Dinner will always be good when I have a serving of kimchi fried rice.
Serve it with spicy Korean chicken and you have a complete meal.
